Your Help for Sinyanga Galandi was received!

Sinyanga Galandi is a 6 year old boy with deformed legs who is currently only able to stand upright using crutches to support him.

Update 1: A donor provided the funds to buy Sinyanga, this 6 year old boy a wheelchair. – Over the next few months he will receive more medical aid. It is hoped that he will eventually be able to walk unaided.

Update 2: Sinyanya can now stand without support of the wheelchair! There is noticeable change that he will be able to walk without crutches.

Sinyanga has already successfully undergone the first part of his treatment, due to the wonderful donations received thus far.
Later this month (June 2108) his doctor will perform the second stage of his treatment, in the hope he will one day be able to walk unaided.

Thank you for your help!

 

Help For Zeldah was received!

Zeldah is 45 years old, she has a husband and 8 wonderful children. Zeldah, a respected and much loved member of her Community, and her family are practicing Jews. Her doctor said she urgently needed an MRI scan in order to make a correct diagnosis. She was experiencing tremendous, sometimes unbearable, stomach and back pain and was severely unwell for some weeks. UPDATE: an anonymous donor graciously donated the amount for Zeldah’s medical needs!

Thank you to the anonymous donor who covered the cost of Zeldah treatment!!

 

Dental Needs for Putti

Dental care within the KKSY Putti Community has always been an enormous problem. There are no affordable local dentists in this region.The Puttis seem to have no knowledge of dental hygiene whatsoever, meaning, if they have untreated gum disease or tooth decay, it is  likely to lead to much more dangerous symptoms. PVAO are aiming to raise $400 more to help our Medical Program which covers dental care.

An American Dentist, David Abramovitch, traveling with some dentist colleagues, visits this region (Mbale region of Uganda) about three times a year. Thus far, he has not manage to treat any KKSY/Putti patients, due to the location and transport difficulties. It is now hoped that when David and his Team, who were treating up to 70 patients a day, return to Uganda, PVAO will arrange for some more of the KKSY Putti members to get dental treatment.
